In 2005 it was reported that the average American spends over 100 hours in traffic delays every year. That’s more than the average two weeks (80 hours) of vacation most workers take each year.
A recent study in the New York Times shows the effects of this burnout and how it can spill over at home in the form of arguments, stress, and bad moods.
Time is the most precious commodity, isn’t it? Think what you would do if you could have that 100 hours back. Or even if you could simply avoid the burnout associated with the “rat race” commute. Could you spend more time with your family? Could you perform better at your job?
Take back your time, rightfully I might add, with phone conferencing and online meetings. Teleconferencing and web conferencing allows even large groups to come together over distance and stay productive.
Stay tuned for my next post where I will share some of my favorite tips to stay productive when working from home.
